Together we can provide safety and security for America’s children. It will result from our collective public investment to our country’s most vulnerable citizens, children who desperately need a life free of violence and fear. Your support helps to prevent and stop exploitation of children! Thank you for propelling this mission forward!
“Safety and security don’t just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear.” – Nelson Mandela
SPECIAL MESSAGE: How We are funded
10.18 is a grassroots organization committed to NOT applying for or taking any form of government funding. Furthermore, this commitment enables a “child-centered focus” to be maintained. No matter how great the intention or efforts, it is impossible to serve two masters. Government funding requires the interest of that government contract to be prioritized, resulting in a secondary focus on the child. We know the government model isn’t working. And we are unwilling to modify our mission to pursue these funds. Therefore, 10.18 is supported solely by private donations and grants. Consequently, we cannot do this vital work without your support!
Donate Gifts-n-kind items
10.18 is extremely grateful for the gifts-n-kind donations we receive. Donated items allow us to increase our impact . We receive donations all year long. Our biggest needs for donated items is during the holidays when we do our First Wish Christmas Drive.
